Lauren Sparks

Aesthetic Injector

Lauren is a Colorado native from Louisville, and moved back to Denver after spending quite some time in Texas. When not in scrubs, during the winter you can find her in the mountains skiing. During summer months you can find her belting some country lyrics at concerts or in a dog park with her adorable little frenchie- Sunny. Sunny is 8 years old, “She is the love of my life and the funniest little weirdo I’ve ever met! My heart and cheese are hers forever.” 

Nursing is Lauren’s second career and as she describes it, “the best decision I’ve ever made.” She has been an RN for 8 years, starting in acute care in adult Oncology. She has since been in aesthetics as both a laser specialist and cosmetic injector for the last 7 years. Lauren loves applying the combination of critical thinking and art. “A great injector understands this is not a “one size fits all” industry. There are many ways to accomplish an aesthetic goal, however, a knowledgeable injector will be able to achieve this goal in a skilled and beautiful way.” Her favorite skin treatment is IPL, she thinks it’s the perfect concoction for anti-aging and pigment correction. Her favorite injectable treatment is neurotoxin, “…because, next to therapy, it’s the best self-improvement tweak you’ll ever make!” 

Her current biggest passion is cosmetic injectables. Lauren has most recently trained with amazing industry leaders such as Dr. Jill Waibel, Dr. Steve Yeolin, Suzanne Rogers, Kimberly Welch, Regan Brooks, & Dr David Saadat to name just a few. She regularly attends national cosmetic conferences & partakes in a Colorado-wide injector mentorship program.

What is one thing that no one knows about Lauren? She can sing “Head, Shoulder, Knees and Toes” in Japanese, BUT her biggest fear is to sing in front of people so her only audience is Sunny!
